Screen burn: "Where a permanent mark is burnt into the mask of the TV screen due to prolonged display."

If Jake's life is a TV show, the set that plays it is afflicted with screen burn, forever displaying his character in a frozen state, unable to change. He is the nice guy who always finishes last. He is stuck being the boring, straight, white male. 

Mateo is a bisexual, biracial troublemaker and everything that a girl wants. 

Jake aims to rewrite his character to win the girl of his dreams, and Mateo is going to help him (willingly or not).

#45 in Humor.

I feel like this will one day happen to me and I'm not prepared for it to destroy me to say the least.

I like this story, I aspire to be able to right like this and have it make sense but alas that won't happen. So we need people like you too continue writing some good meaningful stuff.

As an introvert, I sometimes like being around extroverts because they're so much better at talking than me so there's less awkward silence
